Rep. Heather Scott sent out a newsletter, Thursday, addressing some of her thoughts on the Governors orders.
"This path chosen by Idaho’s Executive Branch is unconstitutional, un-American, and not the Idaho way," said Rep. Scott.
Rep. Scott goes on to say that she believes that putting a stay at home order in place it is taking away American's rights, one of which is the right to assemble.
In Governor Little's stay at home order, he said that church services could be streamed, but only with the minimum number of individuals necessary in person and while following social distancing guidelines.
Rep. Tim Remington is also a pastor at the Altar Life Church in Coeur d'Alene. He has been holding services via broadcast and in person.
In his online broadcast, he said that because of a flu, many of our first Amendment rights have been taken away from us.

The Altar Church saying that they had 50 to 60 people in attendance at Sunday March 29th service, in a 400 person room.
